June 16, 2024Ray Milton

Toprak Razgatlioglu took the lead in the World Superbike championship with a win in race 1 at Misano for the Emilia Romagna Round. However, he wasn’t finished there. Razgatlioglu went on to win both the Superpole Race and Race 2 securing the first hattrick of the season. Razgatlioglu left the weekend with a healthy points lead over Nicolo Bulega and a new stroke of confidence. After race 2 he said, “Before the weekend, I said that it’s my target to get three wins this weekend. Finally I did it. Thank you very much to my team because they did an incredible job this weekend. Especially today, we again improved the bike and I felt more relaxed on it. I really enjoyed the final race especially. It wasn’t an easy race for anyone because of the hot conditions. Everyone was sliding more. But we did a really great job. This is team work because I can not win on my own. Everyone really works hard and now we finally took three wins on a weekend. And it looks like this is just the start. Thanks to everybody!”

Bulega Triple Podium Keeps Him in Title Fight

While Bulega couldn’t quite break the ceiling for the top spot he walked away with 3 podium finishes on the weekend. He said, “I am thrilled. Competing for the first time in Misano with the Superbike and finishing all races in second place is, without a doubt, a great result, even though winning would have been a dream. Anyway, I have to say congratulations to Toprak because he has been really fast. Now we will head to Donington, a circuit that I like a lot.”
